The global gaming market is estimated to rake in over $184 billion and continues to grow daily. According to Newzoo, mobile gaming now accounts for 50% of that global market, dwarfing the console segment at 28% and PC gaming at 21%. Mobile gaming is characterized by core technologies, including smartphone operating systems, game engines, and hardware. Arm’s CPU and GPU architectures are fundamental in the mobile gaming landscape. As 99% of smartphones run on Arm-based processors, optimizing games for Arm is not just a technical consideration but a necessity for reaching the broadest possible audience.

Unity is among the easiest and most popular tools for writing mobile games. 70% of the top 1,000 mobile games are made with Unity, and billions of downloads of Unity-based games are made monthly. As the mobile gaming market grows, Unity developers must prioritize Arm optimization to ensure their games perform flawlessly on these mobile devices.
